I almost always buy the mega rolls. One doesn't need to change the
roll so often. There is regular rolls, giant rolls, double rolls, mega rolls,
and that picture is mostly a joke.....altho that is the kind of rolls they
place in Walmart bathrooms and such.
The one like in the picture I posted are also used here in public restrooms. Just not commonly in homes unless
you have a really REALLY big family or a lot of "regulars"
So is your roll as big as the one in the pic ?
I did get a salad in the mail about a month ago and inside was a $10
That is very unusual, first time I hear about companies sending direct cash like that. For safety reasons I would be reluctant in eating unnamed salad coming through the mail especially with the e-coli outbreak and the many recalls of lettuce.
Oh speaking of $10 bill, recently on the news there was a guy who found a $10 bill on the ground, he used it to buy lottery tickets and won $10 million
And here in Canada, lottery winnings are tax free, you only get taxed on the interests generated, so yeah ....
If it were me, I would not take chances in testing some food items sent by e-mail, especially produce, meat, seafood...... But sealed items like soda cans, cans, jars, boxes, yeah. Often those SAMPLES they send are also unlabeled, to hide the company name to avoid bias. I remember in one of the samples I got before from a survey here, there was a warning that if I had reactions, illness from consumption that I needed to contact the company immediately, and that any treatments would be covered by them - I don't think legally I am allowed to mention what product it was, but it was not food, it was something we all commonly use at least once daily
I really miss Pinecone though, I did lot of product testing with them, what a shame they turned out to be rotten, vile individuals at the support level. I had to become inactive with Pinecone to commit to my other full time work, which I lost, and unfortunately Pinecone refused to reinstate me, even though my account was in excellent standing, they just banned me for inactivity :/ without warning even. But Pinecone was the best though, $3 for the surveys + an additional $3 for the testing, so $6 - and their payment methods were good also, a large reward store and of course PayPal, in $3 increments
I'll try getting back in and asking again, years later. This is the only company I know in Canada that pays a fixed, competitive rate for surveys and testing products.
did do a followup survey but the $10 was paid in advance. It
was a very good salad, came in food box with dry ice.
So it was actual salad, as in lettuce, tomato, and all the rest, including the dressing ? Would definitely not touch that, not knowing how long ago was it produced and whether it was kept in safe temps. I would not take health risks for $10. Besides sending incentive in advance is bad practice anyway, as people can just throw away the product and not bother. There was only one time that I had to not consume ALL the products they sent me, it was a particular type of soda, I had only half a can and it tasted absolutely awful, and basically 1000000000x sweeter than sugar.......tasted like chemicals
SO instead of wasting the other 5 cans, I used them to clean the toilet bowl, sinks, etc, and they were sparkling, fresh, shiny and clean, after hearing about how those sodas can make excellent cleaners, it is really true and worked. AND I made sure to include that in my reviews in the follow-up questions
